I got it to work, but on a different machine. The linux machine itself
doesn't have a display, and I tried to display the graphics on a Windows PC
running Exceed X Server. This, apparently, doesn't work with Kaffe, although
I've never had another program do this to me in the past 3 years. I switched
to one of our Suns, and the X server there shows the graphics. Not quite
satisfactory, but works for me, since I'm not doing that much with the AWT
